Roger with a strong start

21.06.2011 | Starseite 2, Tennis

Roger has made a strong start into this year's tournament in Wimbledon with a 7-6(2), 6-4, 6-2 victory over Mikhail Kukushkinof of Kazakhstan.

"I thought I struggled putting enough returns into play in the first set but I thought he played very well and made it hard for me," Roger said. "He served well but I served very well myself. It was actually quite tricky on one end, very windy, which made it difficult to time the ball well but overall I'm pleased with my performance."

Roger's serve worked very well and helped him through the opening set. He still had to play strong to go all the way into the tie-brek which he clearly dominated 7-2 to take the set. Roger managed to hold an early break in the second set as he fought off break-points a bit later on. The last set seemed easy as he even seemed to test out a few things for the further matches at his favourite tournament.

Roger will meet the winner of the match between Adrian Mannarino and Conor Niland on Thursday. He has never played against either of the players.

Well played roger. It was difficult to play in the wind.
Really liked the way you played in the last 2 sets.

But roger there's one problem, it was there in the french open too.
And it affected you a lot especially in the final.
I'm talking about the break point conversion rate.When you have a break point I know you don't want it to go so you hit your shot really carefully but then you either hit it at the net or long.
It was a problem yesterday too.
Hope you won't repeat it.
All the best

Dear Roger, great performance, good serve and smooth footwork. love it. It made my day. You will be the Champion this year. All the best!

Hey guys, Roger's backhand might not be as impressive as his other superb skills in this match. But Roger is such a great champion that does not deserve any more complaints. And don't you guys see it? Roger's backhand has improved so much in the past few months or half a year. I think he already worked as hard as he could on it. We should appreciate it.
